Unique Features And Strengths:

THE birthplace of free climbing: A lifetime of climbing with stout ethics among stunning sandstone towers - not for the faint hearted.

Description:

The Elbe Sandstone Mountains with their German part (Sächsische Schweiz = Saxon Switzerland) and the Czech counterpart (České Švýcarsko - Czech Switzerland) have long been a epicenter of climbing development (see History). Today, luckily the masses avoid the area mainly because of its grim reputation and stout ethics (see ethics), which require solid climbing skills, some modesty or someone giving advise on the route - even better, all of these. However, with roughly 1100 free standing rock formations and about 20000 routes to climb, this area is a must for the adventurous climber. Late spring till early autumn is the best time for climbing, although the enthusiast may also enjoy south faces on sunny winter days. These will be too hot in summer, but shady faces can always be found. The standard guidebook is the 6-volume "Kletterführer Sächsische Schweiz" by Heinicke (2002 - out of print). Route descriptions in compacted German only. The alternative "Kompakt-Kletterführer Sächsische Schweiz" uses a cryptic sign language which is non-language specific. The "Topoführer Sächsische Schweiz" has only limited coverage, but lots of topos. If you don't have a local friend that can tell you if that VIIa is really VIIa or actually feels like VIIIb with ground fall potential, check http://www.teufelsturm.de with a huge route database and invaluable comments on many routes (in German, but with straightforward icons).

Access Issues:

Most parts right of the Elbe are located within the Nationalpark Sächsische Schweiz with all the rules you'd expect associated with this, but climbing is generally allowed. Left of the Elbe, the area is mostly covered by a lesser degree protection area (Landschaftsschutzgebiet), also with a well marked network of hiking trails. Some few summits are located on private property, see the guidebook. During spring and early summer, selected summits may be closed because of nesting falcons or owls - check at http://dav-felsinfo.de .

Approach:

The area is best reached from Dresden by commuter trains running every half an hour from Dresden (30 - 45 min). Depending on your destination, you can then continue by foot or use buses for the more remote areas, for which a car might be more convenient when you plan to return in the late hours. The more frequented areas are better avoided by car at the weekends, as lots of hikers can occupy the little parking the is. There a not many real roadside crags - be prepared to walk from 15 min (e.g. Falkenstein) up to 2 h (Hinterer Zschand).

Where To Stay:

Being a popular tourist destination, many villages boast boarding houses and smaller hotels. The Sächsische Bergsteigerbund, a subdivision of the German Alpine Club, maintains two huts (Ottomühle and Saupsdorf) which generally require reservation (discounts on membership). Camping may be permitted at the alpine huts (charged) or on the camping ground in the Kirnitzschtal (NW of Bad Schandau). Traditionally, climbers used to bivouac at the walls under overhangs (Boofe ['boa-feh]). This is still tolerated in designated places (Freiübernachtungsstelle). Tread extremely lightly, as anything else endangers this compromise: no fires, no littering, dig a hole.

Ethic:

You want ethics? This is the home of ethics. Most of these are peculiar for outsiders, but have a long history. Although every few years eagerly debated, they are still valid and even legally binding by being referenced by the Nationalpark regulations. They can be summarized as:

  • Climbing is only allowed on free standing rock towers. With only a handful of exceptions, all other rock walls are off limits
  • No climbing on wet rock - for your safety and the soft rock's sake.
  • No hardware protection (friends, rocks, pitons). The gaps between the sparse ring bolts may only be filled with slings (jammed knots, V-threads, lassoed chickenheads). A wooden or plastic "dagger" may be used for better placements.
  • no chalk, no pof
  • Sign the summit register.
  • Jumping is an accepted way of reaching a summit. This can range from slightly more than a stepover to completely insane kamikaze operations. The respective grade system (1-easy to 4-hard) is currently extended to 6 or even 7.
  • Boosting a climber ("unterstützt", i.e. supporting his progress by providing "human holds") is accepted or even necessary on some routes. "Ausgiebig unterstützt" goes as far as building multistory human ladders.
  • Toproping is frowned upon. For first ascends only ground-up ascents are accepted; minimum bolt distance is enforced. Be sure to contact a local, as there may be restrictions on certain cliffs.
History:

The Elbe Sandstone Mountains are probably the birthplace of modern freeclimbing and certainly one of the most historic climbing areas you can find. Not counting the Bronze-age settlement on Pfaffenstein nor the occassional remains of castles of robber-knight on some summits, climbing here dates back to the mid 19th century. In 1864, gymnasts from Bad Schandau ascended the Falkenstein. While their style (using ladders, thrown ropes and pick-axes) saw a few imitators, it soon became clear that what we today call "free-climbing" is the way to go. Oskar Schuster and Rudolf Fehrmann were among the driving forces to formulate the Saxonian climbing rules, as they still stand today (see ethics): no climbing onto anything "a cow could ascend" (ie only true summits), no progress on artificial holds, placing bolts only as the last resort. This visionary abstinence, born from a mixture of elitarism, boldness and an eye for conservation issues alike, helped to form a climbing standard that was unrivalled in the world for decades until the 1970ies. Milestones like Spannagelturm Perrykante (VIIb) by Oliver Perry-Smith (1906), Wilder Kopf Westkante (VIIIa) by Emanuel Strubich (1918), Frienstein Königshangel IXa by Fritz Eske (1965) and Amselspitze Schallmauer Xa (Bernd Arnold) are still testpieces for modern climbers - especially when you would climb with the equipment of the respective era. Saxonian climbers like Fehrmann and Strubich also left their footprints in Alps. In the 1930ies, Fritz Wiessner brought Saxonian ethics to the USA, where it evolved to modern freeclimbing and finally spread over the world. The two World Wars took their toll among climbers - but also the crags - a great part of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains became part of Chechoslovakia, which made climbing trips for climbers crossing the border a little more complicated. During the Socialist era, free traveling to western countries was banned. Arguably, this may also have contributed to the rise of climbing difficulties: climbers like Karl-Heinz Gonda, Bernd Arnold, Mathias Gäbler and Manfred Vogel established benchmarks of their time. However, in the recent decades the strict gound-up ethic made the creation of climbs at the top end of the scale increasingly difficult if not impossible. Already, some first ascenders have been suspected to bend the rules; and debated routes have even been removed. Every few years, the controversy between traditionalist (defending the status quo) and reformers (wishing to allow climbing on currently forbidden walls and rappel-bolting) boils up again. So far, the tradition stood its ground, supported by the National Park administration, who also favours restrictive climbing rules. Whatever the future may bring, with roughly 20000 routes there is a lifetime of climbing - and despite being considered "outclimbed" for first ascents long ago, some enthusiast still add some hundred routes each year.

Long/Lat: 14.047480, 50.832022

Unique Features And Strengths:

Narrow valley with high density of small and mid-sized pinnacles of hard sandstone

Description:

The Bielatal hosts the highest density of summits in the area. Its smaller and mid-sized cliffs with amazing shapes, comparatively hard sandstone that dries quickly and short approaches make it one of the most popular destinations, especially for beginners. Expect crowds and chaotic parking situations during weekends - boost your eco-Karma (and train your patience) by using the bus. The summits close to the parking may additionally be haunted by non-climbing folk. However, if you walk up the valley a little further you can always find a quiet spot.

Approach:

Take the bus from the train station of Königstein to Schweizermühle, which is located at the start of the valley. Using the car, pass Schweizermühle towards Ottomühle and park at the parking (fee).

Where To Stay:

Alpine Club hut (SBB Hütte) in Ottomühle provides cheap beds, camping on request. Check in advance (www.bielatal-huette.de). The Ottomühle (http://ottomuehle.com/ ) also offers some rooms.

Summary:
Trad and Top Rope

Long/Lat: 12.851945, 49.087943

Unique Features And Strengths:

Short routes on white quartzite and kids-friendly setting

Description:

The "Pfahl" is a unique linear quartzite formation that surface at several places in the Bavarian Forest. Here, at "Großer Pfahl", large parts of it have been mined. The remains ("Unterer Pfahl" =lower, eastern part, an open cast and the "Oberer Pfahl" =climbable upper, western part) have been declared a conservation area with many information boards on wildlife, geology and mining. "Oberer Pfahl" is less frequented by non-climbers and features an idyllic setting among heathers, blueberries and quatzite blocks of up to 15 m height. Safe for kids, plenty of easier routes. Few bolts, expect some trad and toprope routes for the harder grades. http://www.kleimbing.de/Gebiete/Pfahl/pfahl.html

Access Issues:

The entire Großer Pfahl is a conservation area. Climbing is only allowed (and worthwile) at the western part ("Oberer Pfahl") and restricted to roughly half of the blocks and their south faces. No bolting allowed.

Approach:

From Viechtach, drive NW on B85 towards Prackenbrach. Shortly after leaving the town, you will spot signs to "Großer Pfahl" and a parking on the right. Keep going for another 1.5 km (passing a pullout on th left) to another pullout on the left. Park here and cross the road. the rocks are just behing the trees. Beware: In some desciptions, the term "Kleiner (Little) Pfahl" is used for the upper (only climbable) part, which is somewhat confusing because there is different place of that name somewhere else.

1.24.2. Cratzenbach 13 routes in Crag

Summary:
All Sport

Long/Lat: 8.389755, 50.332033

Unique Features And Strengths:

Schiefersteinbruch mit Kletterei an kleinen Leisten. Durch die offene Südlage kann an sonnigen Tagen auch bei kaltem Wetter geklettert werden.

Description:

Der ehemalige Schiefersteinbruch in der Nähe von Cratzenbach lockt mit einigen Routen. Der gesamte Steinbruch ist von 2 größeren Bändern durchzogen. Ansonsten wird meist im leicht geneigten Bereich an kleinen Leisten. Durch Südlage kann man fast das ganze Jahr durch bei sonnigem Wetter dort klettern, nur im Sommer wird es zu heiß. Spielwiese, Feuerstelle und Grillhütte bieten Möglichkeiten zur Beschäftigung abseits des Kletterns, daher liegen leider oft auch Glasscherben in Felsnähe.

Approach:

Vom Parkplatz aus über die Straße und man ist am Fels. Mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln nur sehr schlecht zu erreichen.

Ethic:

Aufgrund von Steinschlaggefahr besteht ein Ausstiegsverbot, ebenso ist es verboten, von oben Topropes einzuhängen. Neutourenverbot.

Long/Lat: 8.534517, 50.365420

Unique Features And Strengths:

Viele leichte Routen und große Picknickwiese machen die Eschbacher Klippen zu einem idealen Gebiet für Kindergruppen und Familien.

Description:

Die Eschbacher Klippen sind eines der wohl bedeutensten Klettergebiete im Taunus. Durch die vielen leichten Routen ergibt sich eine optimale Anfänger- und Kindereignung. An Sommerwochenenden ist der Fels jedoch oft überladen. Einige der Routen, vor allem die leichteren sind leider sehr speckig.

Approach:

Vom Parkplatz aus nach Norden zum Saienstein oder über die Straße und den Schildern zum Buchstein folgen.

Ethic:

Die Benutzung von Chalk ist an den Eschbacher Klippen aus ästhetischen Gründen verboten.

Summary:

Long/Lat: 9.040242, 49.839537

Unique Features And Strengths:

Buntsandstein mit unterschiedlichsten Anforderungen an den Kletterer, Routen mit bis zu 35 m Länge. Schattige Lage, daher auch an heißen Sommertagen zum Klettern geeignet,

Description:

Ehemaliger Buntsandstein-Steinbruch mit zahlreichen Kletterouten vom 4. - 9. Grad. Der Schwerpunkt der Routen liegt im oberen 6. bis unteren 8. Grad, sodass der Fels nur bedingt für Anfänger geeignet ist. Jedoch gibt es einen kurzen, kindergeeigneten Klettersteig. Meist eher schattig, nur in den oberen Bereichen der Routen Sonne. Zudem gibt es eine kleine Grillhütte mit Möglichkeit zum Unterstellen bei Regen.

Access Issues:

Im Frühjahr sind häufig die oberen Teile der Routen wegen Vogelbrut gesperrt, in der unteren Hälfte kann man jedoch trotzdem Klettern, da jeweils mehrere Umlenker vorhanden sind. Auch der Klettersteig ist meist von der Sperrung betroffen, sodass er nur teilweise begangen werden kann. (Infotafel am Steinbruch beachten, meist auch Hinweisschilder an den Routen.)

Approach:

Parkplatz direkt am Fels in der Kurve der Wald-Amorbacher Straße zwischen Wald-Amorbach und Hainstadt.

1.25.2. Borstein 40 routes in Crag

Summary:
Mostly Trad

Long/Lat: 8.677617, 49.714425

Unique Features And Strengths:

Durch seine schattige Lage eignet sich der Fels besonders an heißen Sommertagen zum klettern. Einige schöne Kletter- und viele nette Boulderrouten.

Description:

Der Borstein ist ein kleiner, fast vollständig von Bäumen umgebener Fels. Da er nicht allzu häufig zum klettern benutzt wird, ist er vor allem an der Nordseite sehr Moosbewachsen. Fast alle Routen lassen sich bequem von oben als Toprope einrichten, in den meisten Routen gibt es keine Haken. Sehr dichtes Routennetz mit vielen Varianten.

Access Issues:

Eher lange feucht, da sehr schattig.

Approach:

Mit dem Auto: B 47 bis Reichenbach, in der Ortsmitte auf der Beedenkirchener Straße Richtung Beedenkirchen, anschließend die zweite Möglichkeit links in die Balkhäuser Straße und gleich wieder links Richtung Borstein (Beschilderung zum Waldgasthaus Borstein folgen). Die Straße führt am Fels vorbei, das Parken ist direkt am Fels möglich.
